I don't know much about this, but I believe each sound card creates a /dev/dspx file. Your first soundcard would be /dev/dsp0, and the second should be /dev/dsp1. I think you can setup your sound server to use one or the other. For KDE, it's under Sound System (which is under Sounds and Multimedia). Select the Sound I/O tab, and pick a custom sound device.
